A perfect summer grilling recipe! J said it was so good we should serve it next time we entertain.
Mustard Glazed Chops with Apple Salad
3 C greens (I used baby spinach)
1 Fuji apple, sliced thinly (best to use organic)
1 C thinly sliced celery (about 2 stalks)
1/2 C toasted nuts
3 T cider vinegar
3 T olive oil
1 T honey
1/4 C crumbled blue cheese
sea salt and ground black pepper
2 T Dijon-style mustard
1 T whole grain mustard
1 T olive oil mayo
2 tsp packed brown sugar or honey
2 tsp snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried thyme crushed
4 pork loin chops -1 inch thick
For salad, in a large bowl toss together greens, apple, celery, and nuts. Cover and chill. For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together vinegar, oil, honey, and blue cheese. Season with salt and pepper, cover and chill.
In a small bowl whisk together Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, mayo, brown sugar or honey, thyme, and 1/4 tsp pepper; set aside.
Place chops on covered grill directly over medium hear. Grill for 10 to 12 minutes or until 145F, turning once halfway through grilling. Transfer chops to a plate and let stand for 5 minutes. Spoon mustard mixture over chops. Toss salad with dressing. Pair it is a chilled white wine and a delish dinner is served!
Until next time…
